Via Faith Is Torment:

“This ongoing project entitled Lux Noctis by Chicago-based photographer Reuben Wu ‘depicts landscapes within the framework of traditional landscape photography but influenced by ideas of planetary exploration, 19th-century sublime romantic painting, and science fiction.’  Wu imagined these scenes as the familiar transformed into undiscovered landscapes to renew perceptions of our world.”

Each image is a carefully-planned scene consisting of multiple lighting positions, layered to produce a theatrically-lit composition. Using the GPS-enabled aerial light/drone in specific positions in space, I am able to create moods of drama and tension through chiaroscuro, and the ability to illuminate isolated features of a scene and exclude unwanted elements.
